Five fun ways to spend time online when stuck at home

We all know what it’s like to be stuck at home right now, so what things can we do to not only pass the time but get the most out of that time, whether it’s constructive or having plain old fashion fun. We will take a look at five ways to enjoy yourself online, so let’s get started.

Create your own YouTube channel

With over a billion YouTube users, it seems that everyone is setting up their own channels these days. What can start out as a bit of fun has made many people rich. As their channel’s popularity grows and their viewers and subscribers increase, you can start to earn money through advertisements. YouTube is watched more by 18 to 49-year-olds than television! Regardless, it’s a great way to goof around and share videos with your friends and family. It’s easy to get started. You simply need to either sign in or create a YouTube account, click on the profile icon in the top right-hand side of your screen and then select Create a channel from the drop-down menu. You then need to choose whether your channel will be used for personal usage or business. Then lastly, you need to give your new channel a name. You can then upload a profile picture for the channel and add a description to let viewers know what type of content you intend to post. You can even attach links to other websites or social media platforms. Then start uploading; it’s that simple! 

Play online bingo

When most people think of bingo, they think of smoky old bingo halls full of old ladies. Well, that is not the case anymore. The world of bingo has developed and evolved with the times. The new online platforms are brilliant and offer a great selection of different games. There are also different themes to choose from, which are often based on popular TV shows or otherworldly interests. That means you can not only enjoy fun bingo games, but you can chat with other like-minded people as well through the attached game chat rooms. There are some great prizes to be won. The graphics, sounds, and gameplay make online bingo one of their most enjoyable online games today. With the advancements of technology, the possibilities are limitless, and it’s exciting to see what the future brings.

You can visit anywhere in their world at the click of a button.

Take a tour of the world

You can take a tour of the world right from your living room these days with the aid of Google maps. If you download the Google Earth program, it lets you fly around the world and gives you the ability to zoom in and out of any location on the planet. So why not see the Eiffel Tower from your bedroom, the Coliseum from your kitchen, or the Grand Canyon from the living room. You can be transformed anywhere in the world at the click of a button. One cool feature that not everyone knows about is that once you select an area, you can bring up links and photos posted by users who can give you a tour of a place like no other. The possibilities are endless, and you will find yourself touring the globe for hours.

Learn a new skill

We all want to spend as much time having as much fun as possible, but we can also use our time to do something constructive and learn a new skill. There is always something we wish we could do, but we don’t have the time to do it or even know how we go about learning that skill. Since the birth of the internet, those days are behind us, and we have no excuses to educate ourselves better. At the click of a button, we can find millions of different online courses, and many of them come at no cost. You could learn to play an instrument, take an online art course, learn to build something from wood or metal, learn sign language, or how to bake your favorite cake. The courses are aimed at all different levels of people so there is no excuse not to better yourself.

Open an online store

What can be more fun than making money? With websites such as Amazon and eBay, it has never been easier to sell your old clothes or unwanted items. Why not build your own buying and selling empire from scratch? The good thing about this is that it is tailored for everyone so if you only want to clear some space in your wardrobe to buy some new clothes you can, or perhaps you want to get rid of some DVDs to raise money towards a holiday, or you want to be the Del Boy of eBay by buying and selling online, you can do it all.

As you can see, the internet opens a whole new world of opportunities and adventures for you to explore. You can find out anything online, see anything and most importantly, reach out to the rest of the world from the comfort of your own home. To conclude, the internet is good for your well-being as you can learn as much as you want, it’s good for the economy as it creates millions of jobs. It is good for communication as you can keep in touch with friends, family, colleagues, or business contacts by using many different platforms available. You have the ability to be as sociable as you want without having to leave home.
